Betty Ann is an ideal Bahamas cruiser. We took her on a 1000 mile trip through the Bahamas last summer and it was the time of our lives. She has a 36″ draft so the shallow depths of the Bahamas are no problem. 135′ of anchor chain spliced into 150 of line, attached to a Spade anchor, hoisted by a brand new Lewmar anchor windlass makes anchoring a breeze. We spent about half the time in the Bahamas at anchor, and it was wonderful.
The 8kw Kohler diesel generator with Yanmar engine has about 1750 hours. When we bought the boat, I had it serviced by the Kohler dealer, and they put a new water pump on it. I changed the oil every 100 hours, and the filter every other oil change. It runs beautifully, and will easily run all three air conditioning units and keep the boat at 75 degrees with no problem.
If you decide to shut off the generator, the 1.2 kw in sovello solar panels on the roof of the flybridge will supply all the power you need except for the airconditioning. There are 8 group 31 AGM 115 amphour batteries on Betty Ann, and you will have no shortage of storage.
The 11.5′ West Marine Hypalon RIB tender with 25hp Johnson 2 stroke outboard is indispensable in the Bahamas. It is your car to get around. It will easily plane with four people to get you into town in a hurry.
